4 Bed House - Detached
Offers Over £365,000
With open countryside views, landscaped gardens and thoughtfully extended accommodation, this welcoming family home is set quietly to the edge of Selkirk – allowing it the best of both a stunning rural landscape and town amenities.
Positioned just outside Selkirk and surrounded by extensive countryside , Briarbank sits quietly nestled at the foot of the golf course – affording wonderful open views over rolling fields on all sides, and just a short walk to the town itself, it is a striking stone built period home lending itself ideally to modern family life.
Dating originally to 1865, the former dairy benefits from recent modern extensions blending seamlessly to now provide a comfortable, spacious and country- contemporary family home. The ground floor provides a welcoming public space for a growing family, entertaining friends or indeed homeworking as is now the norm. With two separate public rooms and a bright dining kitchen with a dual aspect, the use of the reception areas is flexible; with the outdoor opening from the sitting room and cleverly landscaped with a raised deck and seating areas, creating an extension to the socialising space. Upstairs are two generous double bedrooms both with built in storage and one benefiting from en-suite facilities. There are a further two comfortable double bedrooms, all with excellent outlooks. The family bathroom is generously sized and fully fitted with a modern suite.
The garden has been cultivated to fully utilise all the available space, and most importantly, created to enjoy the peace and countryside aspect provided by Briarbank’s excellent position. With plenty of peaceful viewpoints, there is also a fully insulated and double glazed home-office with mains connectivity, in addition to a raised deck, patio, seating and dining areas, a driveway, garage and additional parking to the side of the garage. The property is also fitted with a 4KW solar panel array.
The property is ideally placed within Selkirk for all town centre amenities with a good selection of small local shops providing for everyday requirements and schools from nursery to secondary level all easily accessible. The property also benefits from easy access to Edinburgh via the A7 and A68 and is within easy reach of the new Borders rail connections with the opening of the Waverley Line and new stations at Galashiels and Tweedbank. The area also has good road and bus connections to all central Borders towns and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with rolling hills, scenic valleys and two golf courses all close to hand.
